Dear OpenAirInterface Community,

We are pleased to announce the « Fall 2021 OpenAirInterface Workshop: Hands-On with the OAI Architects». 

The workshop will be held from 8th to 9th December 2021, 3:00 PM to 10:00 PM Central European Time (09:00 AM-04:00 PM US Eastern Time). 

In our last workshop, we showed the demos of the OAI 5G RAN and the OAI 5G CN. We also announced the launch of the MOSAIC5G PROJECT GROUP. The Fall 2021 Workshop is a hands-on event to teach our community how to use and contribute to all three projects.

Here are some of the exciting things you can expect to learn at the OAI 2021 Fall workshop:

  • 5G RAN: Showing how to build/run the gNB, build/run L2-simulator including nFAPI and channel proxy, and  build/run of CU-DU interface
  • 5G CN: Different deployment scenarios (Minimal vs Basic, Fix Ip-address vs FQDN, NRF vs No NRF, SPGWU-tiny vs VPP-UPF) and Network Slicing
  • Mosaic5G: Deployment of FlexRIC and FlexCN over the OAI stack and development of Xapps

You will learn during the course of this event how to use, deploy and run the OAI code. You will definitely leave the workshop with a fuller understanding of OAI.

If you would like to try contributing to the OAI codebase, the team will throw a set of challenges for you to address after the hands-on sessions.  

This workshop invites OAI members, software and computer engineers, academic partners and industrials (find our partners list here), and any person who wants to explore and learn OpenAirInterface more thoroughly. 

We look forward to welcoming new contributors to the OAI code base and enthusiasts and new collaborators to the OAI community. 

Registration and participation information will be provided middle of November. Stay tuned!
